Doocot, Gardyne Castle walled garden project, Angus, Scotland.

As part of the reinstatement of the historic walled garden, this complex tower was commissioned using Accoya® on the outside, aiding the longevity of the refurbishment.

The wooden lantern is supported by a tapering circular stone base. Adorned by a concave conical roof clad in slate and lead. The circular building provided challenging but has resulted in a unique and striking structure at the entrance to the castle.

This structure also showcases the fine joinery side of Jonny’s work. Tilting louvres shutters, casement windows, running curved mouldings and other decorative features were made from Accoya® painted in Farrow and Ball French grey.

The tower functions as an office space, a regal working environment at the entrance to the castle grounds.
